I hope all of you enjoyed Mother’s Day. I have to say it was probably one of my best Mother’s Day that I have had in a while with my kids.
Briana and I started the day with a four mile walk around our local lake, stopped for an egg breakfast afterwards, headed down to Newport Beach for a few hours, and then went back to my house for a BBQ with close friends. It was Mike's first time back at the house for a few months, so it was great to have my two kids, the two dogs and Troy together. The kids swam, while I grilled pork tenderloin, filet mignon, and grilled vegetables and made a nice big salad. It was one of those days that I felt completely at peace and without stress and really just enjoyed he moment and felt grateful for my blessings.
Now, onto a recap of this weeks episode. When Lydia and Heather picked me up from LAX, I had just flown in from Atlanta which left at 6:45 am east coast time (3:45 am pacific time), had been flying for four hours, had been gone three days at an insurance conference and was exhausted. I was not "up" to going to Malibu, as I had pretty much decided not to continue to do any appearances or events with Tamra due to our ongoing friendship issues. Chris, our business partner, felt it was important for me to go so I did. Hindsight, I probably should have stayed back. I told Chris about my concerns of being around Tamra because of our unresolved issues, and he assured me she would be fine and it was strictly business and there would be no conflict.
Since I had already picked out my wines for the next six months, I had a lack of interest in even being there as my job had already been done. I wanted to go and support Tamra choosing her wines, but truthfully I think she was more into drinking the wines than she was really picking out a wine of the month for our club.
